The PV for the theme of the SNHG's upcoming sports tournament, one of their big annual events, comprising footage from the one last year:

http://n.miaopai.com/media/oQQdGBdDAi5uv3ycXJL72KNbye22f7kL

The scale of the event will be much bigger this year, as it'll be participated by the teams of SNH48's sister groups too, instead of just the teams of SNH48 last year. :)
Led by the currently #2-ranked member from SNH48's 2nd team, the 100 participating members from the SNHG groups performing the theme together at the event today:

As seen in the above pics, she's shown as both a knight & a queen in front of her palace - hmm, the whole thing feels a bit similar to a certain shojo manga/anime from the 90s. lol
